Internal conflict is raging inside divisions of the Faylaq al-Sham terrorist group in Idlib’s countryside.

This is the latest bout of internal conflict in jihadist-held Idlib that has ravaged militant forces since their invasion of the govenorate with Turkish-backing in early 2015.

Faylaq members have split into 3 opposing groups threatening to exterminate each other after a bitter feud.

According to sources, the main reasons behind this conflict is the rejection some of the groups have inside Faylaq to go fight along with Furat Shield, the Turkish-led forces who are engaging the Kurdish YPG in Aleppo countryside.

Some commanders of Faylaq were also stealing salaries of the fighters and not paying them. Some commanders were selling weapons and ammunition belonging to Faylaq, including TOW missiles, to other jihadist groups.

Faylaq was at one point a US-vetted opposition group and received BGM-71 TOW missiles.

Estos son terroristas patrocinados por Turquía, se entiende que este grupo terrorista debería de respetar el alto al fuego acordado en Astana pero igual que su amo no acata.
Estos terroristas claramente son traidores a su propia nación al aceptar la invasión de un ejercito extranjero en territorios Sirios.
Este grupo terrorista es verguenza para el pueblo Sirio y de hecho su repudio a estos mercenarios, es por ello la división interna, de hecho los traidores a la patria Siria se irán a luchar junto a Erdogan.

They are degrading into pure mercenary habits. Their cause is lost and they continue to live by fighting. And mercenaries have no fatherland.
